Aroma is malts, fruit and relatively mild Minhas funk. The flavor is malts, fruit/berries, slightly grainy texture and a mix of tart/sour and slight Minhas funk in the finish.

Had as Boatswain H.L.V. (Heavy Lift Vessel) Ale. Aroma has hardly any strength or notes, scarcely smells like beer at all. Pours a dark, barely translucent sepia with a thick, if not persistent, light buff head. Flavor is malty, a little hoppy, rather bitter - and a nasty bitter, not a nice hoppy bitter. Smooth texture has OK fizz but not much body. Barely palatable, not one to which I will return.

Bottle from Trader Joes (HLV Ale). Huge foamy head, medium brown body. Aroma is too sweet, candy, cough syrup. Taste is just a tad bit better, sweet and cloying, soda sweet. Body weight OK, mouth feel alright, terrible finish

Okay, so I picked up a 22 of this from Old Farm in Frederick because they had it on a sale for $1.89 a bottle. Hell, the bottle is worth a buck to me to homebrew so how the hell can the beer not be worth 89 cents. Had to try a few of the Minhas beers. Pretty good looking beer, but not sure what I am smelling. But I have had beers with no nose that were tasty. Well, not so much, not the worst beer I have ever had but certainly not what I would call good. The funny thing is that I am trying to figure out if I would buy more for the bottles and the alcohol, I mean, $1.89. Nah, rather save a little liver mileage for something else. That said, gonna use the bottle so nothing lost.
